Hugh Laurie Is Coming To Veep

Permission to scream 'BRAVO!!!' at an annoyingly loud volume?

Amazing casting news for a show that's justly celebrated for its incredibly on-point casting: Veep is getting a dose (geddit) of Hugh Laurie in its upcoming fourth season!

Given the setting of the show (and the fact that it already did an England episode in Season 3), Laurie's as-yet-unspecified role will probably require him to revive his gum-chewy Gregory House accent, which is not my favourite. But since HE is one of my favourites, I'm sure that whatever he's coming on to do is going to be an otherwise unqualified delight.
